As I’ve mentioned previously, alongside the Xbox 360, Logitech’s Squeezebox network music players are must have accessories for Windows Home Server, particularly for those with large music collections. With Logitech’s Windows Home Server add-in for Squeezebox currently in beta (actually, one of the longest betas I’ve seen in a while – release it already!), pairing your home server with a Squeezebox has become a lot simpler than it used to be.
Logitech today released two new models in the Squeezebox range – the Squeezebox Radio and Touch.
The Squeezebox radio offers music streaming from your home server (or PC/Mac) alongside easy access to thousands of Internet Radio stations from across the globe, plus access to leading music services from Pandora, Rhapsody and Sirius (in the USA). The 2.4” colour screen displays album art, track information as well as photos from Flickr and Facebook. The integrated speaker is especially useful when combined with the iPod/iPhone audio jack. The Squeezebox Radio benefits from supporting MP3, FLAC, WAV, AIFF, WMA, Ogg Vorbis, AAC, and Apple Lossless audio files.
The Squeezebox Touch meanwhile offers a similar level of functionality (albeit without the integrated speaker), alongside a 4.3” touchscreen, optical inputs and outputs plus the ability to playback music from USB and SD.
The Squeezebox Radio is available soon for $200 with the Touch coming in December to the US for around $300.
